Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I have been to the Solukhumdu/Everest region of Nepal more than 18 times now at my own expense. I am passionate about creating libraries in rural villages to enhance the education of the children and to give them a learning experience.

From leaving UK, can take up to 4 days to reach one of the village's. It's not an easy journey.

Many of the children walk up to 2hrs to reach school and that after they have done house chores before. Sometimes they are cold and hungry before they start the day. When they see the magic that a library gives, it makes it all worth while

Through generous donations CITC will be able to continue to provide the following:-

To built classrooms, meeting earthquake resistant standards

Sponsors female teachers, providing ongoing professional development

Provides menstrual health training and improves hygiene facilities, empowering women and girls to stay in education

Provides clean water and gender specific toilets

Benefits over 5,500 children every year

90% of all donations are spent at grassroots level
